Or what about "Source > Computer by:" - unless I'm wrong, WAV isn't the only end format (AIFF?)

While we're on it, is "lineage" a good term?

"Conversion by:" would cause less confusion because even myself thought Transfered by meant the person who transfered the show to the archive

As confusing as it is, that's the term...learn it, love it, use it. Right under that there is an "Uploaded By" field. I'm guessing that's where the name/email/identity of the person who uploaded (the official term of the files going from the "uploader's" computer to the archive. I don't think we need to change the terminoligy to deal w/ confusion, we just need to have folks learn the terminoligy :)

later,

learn it, love it, use it

...but do spell it right, as

"Transferred by"

(note to Jon. ;) )

BTW, "transfer" in trading circles is actually a shorthand for "DAT transfer", usually meaning

bits on a DAT tape> bits in CDR-ready form (ie, on an audio CD or on a HD or packed into data files)

I think it would be great to have definitions of all the meta-terms available via FAQ. To help along that process add that when dealing with a laptop recording there is no transfer --- so leave the "transferred by" field blank.
